What do the results of the Gallup poll really say about public opinion on creationism and evolution? In his minitalk for Darwin Day at the Burke, the National Center for Science Education’s Glenn Branch will explain that, on the one hand, the conceptual geography of the creationism/evolution controversy is more complicated than Gallup’s question acknowledges and, on the other hand, the public’s engagement with the controversy is less intensive than Gallup’s question presupposes.
